Octavian announces new mixtape ‘SPACEMAN’ with the short but sweet ‘Revenge’

The smooth-as-heck new track is today’s Neu Pick.

Every weekday, DIY’s new music know-it-all Neu brings you one essential new release to get obsessed with. Today’s Neu Pick comes from Octavian.

Octavian has been making a hell of a lot of noise over the last year, and while he works on his debut album (expected next year), the SE London-based rapper has announced details of a new mixtape.

‘SPACEMAN’ will come out on 10th September (yep, next week!) and is being previewed by short but sweet first track ‘Revenge’.

The track makes its mark in under two minutes, though. A sample of a countdown to a rocket launch is a pretty fitting introduction to the track: silky beats and treated vocals place Octavian somewhere between the moshpit and the club, and paint him as an extremely exciting new voice.

Octavian is set to take ‘SPACEMAN’ on tour later this year, including a handful of already sold-out UK dates.
